Gorlitz, Will
Not Everyone Not Everyone
1991 1991

This piece was created by Will Gorlitz for an exhibition in conjunction with a national artists’ conference held at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in 1991. The installation consists of two parts: a photograph taken through a grilled window at Kingston Penitentiary and twenty-one small figure paintings on steel. The paintings depict people walking through a shopping mall, as if seen by a security camera. The work raises questions about surveillance, relative freedom and privacy rights. Gorlitz also explores notions of criminality and confinement in a way that is particularly relevant to this region, the location of eight penal institutions.
